Five properties primed for development in Berrien County

Former Target, 5 O'Clock Sports Bar have building officials waiting

While Olive Garden and Dave & Buster’s are unlikely to come to Berrien County, there are some properties primed for future developments.

To ring in the new year, The Herald-Palladium did a deep dive on five prominent properties across the county that have been under the watchful eye of key developers and building officials.


Shoppers visit the Benton Township Target store in 2017. It would close by February 2018.


The former 5 O’Clock Bar & Restaurant located along Red Arrow Highway in Stevensville is pictured in 2019.


The Orchards Mall is pictured Jan. 7. Plans to add a hotel and conference center by the end of 2022 were scrapped last year. 


The former Nye’s Apple Barn in St. Joseph Township is pictured last summer. The 12-acre parcel on Niles Road just off I-94 is zoned single-family residential and sits adjacent to a residential subdivision.


Golfers play a round at The Berrien Hills Golf Club in 2019. Once the golf course closed, a firm pitched a development for houses, townhouses, apartments, a medical facility, restaurants, a preschool and day care.
